3.3.1 Source Directory

The ttylinux CD-ROM is used as the source, or the ttylinux CD-ROM image file mounted with a loop device can be used. Even the kernel and file system image files removed from the ttylinux CD-ROM image can be used as the source if they are in a directory structure as found in the CD-ROM image.

Using the ttylinux CD-ROM Disc

For the following examples of mounting the CD-ROM disc, /mnt/cdrom references the mount point in your file system to which the CD-ROM disc mounts. If you are not using ttylinux then your actual mount point may be different; substitute accordingly. Have the ttylinux boot CD-ROM disc in the CD-ROM drive and mount it. You need to know which device in /dev to use; if you do not know which device to use then section 3.4.1 might help. The CD-ROM should be mounted as type iso9660 e.g., mounted by the following command.

	mount -t iso9660 /dev/<partition> /mnt/cdrom

Using a ttylinux CD-ROM ISO Image File

If you have a downloaded ttylinux CD-ROM image file, ttylinux-i486-14.0.iso.gz, ttylinux-i686-14.0.iso.gz or ttylinux-x86_64-14.0.iso.gz, then you can mount it via loopback device with the following commands; substitue i686 or x86_64 for i486 where appropriate.

	mkdir -p mnt/cdrom
	gunzip ttylinux-i486-14.0.iso.gz
	mount -t iso9660 -o loop ttylinux-i486-14.0.iso mnt/cdrom

Critical ttylinux CD-ROM Files

Of the following three files, you must have access to the first two; the third one is very usefull, but not critical. In the following, "CD-ROM/" is meant to be wherever you mounted the CD-ROM disc or CD-ROM image file.

CD-ROM/boot/filesys.gz - ttylinux gzipped ext2 file system image
CD-ROM/boot/vmlinuz - gzipped ttylinux Linux kernel
CD-ROM/config/ttylinux-setup - user-maintained RAM disk startup
